I have one tin of Bag Balm in the kitchen, one in a cupboard in the study, and one at my bedside. This is a very soothing (and, I think, healing) ointment, and I am delighted that you are stocking it again.

My husband has battled recurrent cancer episodes for over 11 years. He is again dealing with side effects from current chemotherapy, one of which is causing severe dry skin on his hands. As a nurse, I remember using Bag Balm for dry hands one winter a few years back, caused by constant washing of hands at work. I ordered some for his hands and his hands are greatly improved by using this product. There has not been a change in the medication he has to receive, but, by applying this Bag Balm a few times a day and wearing gloves when trying to work outside, his hands are no longer cracked to the point of bleeding. As a matter of fact, the cracks are gone. There is still some dryness, but he continues to use it so he is now staying ahead of the problem. Thanks for having this practical and useful product available!!!

I originally bought this to tame dry skin. It is so healing that I have applied it on cuts; quicker recovery than anything else I have used. Then I had the start of a cold sore and thought, "why not?" And it immediately started the healing, preventing full development. I use it on my hands and arms all the time. If my face is especially dry, I put some on at bedtime and have softer skin in the morning. It's also great to put on your legs and feet at bedtime; you wake up with smooth skin. It is, frankly, magical. Simple - pure - effective

This winter has been so cold that my finger tips have become cracked. My dog has to be walked no matter what the weather and so there is no escaping by staying indoors. I tried the Bag Balm and it has helped a great deal. Thank you Vermont farmers.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by azjisgis2000 For More Than Just Soft Hands!
I recently purchased my first tin of Bag Balm and tried it out. Not only does it keep skin soft, but it seems to help heal nicks and cuts in the hands and around fingernails. Great for feet and elbows, too. I shared some with my mom, who has suffered from extremely dry and cracked hands since I was a young child. Now she has terrible arthritis that has curled her hands. She tried it out thinking it would help with the dryness. Over the course of several days, she found it seemed to help her arthritis as well; swelling and pain appeared to reduce. She was able to actually bend fingers again. She even asked for a tin for Christmas! There is one downside to this product, though. The aroma of this product is not exactly sweet-smelling!

I gave birth to 35 week preemie babies in June. My son has a problem with rashes forming if any waste touches him for any amount of time. This bag balm was given to me by the hospital after 3 types of triple diaper paste were tried. This stuff creates the barrier necessary to prevent rashes before they start!!! We use it on both my son and daughter daily!! Definitely recommend to everyone!
